Exclusion of linkage to 14q23-24 in a family with Holt-Oram syndrome.Clin Genet 1994; 46(3):257-9CG
Holt-Oram syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder with congenital heart defects and skeletal malformations of the upper extremities. A patient with a deletion of 14q23-24 and Holt-Oram syndrome has been described. In this report, however, genetic linkage to the 14q23-24 region is excluded in a multigeneration family with five available individuals affected with Holt-Oram syndrome. Familial Holt-Oram syndrome might be different from the syndrome with the 14q23-24 deletion.
